Capoeira, Salvador da Bahia: 4 reviews and 4 photos


During the slavery period the portuguese didn't want fights between the slaves, so the african created a new fight dance without touching themselves during the play.
The new fight take inspiration to an ancient Angola fight: Angola was the country that gives the most quantity of slaves to the portuguese and the roots of this country are very important for the culture of this big beautifull country. Slavery stopped in Brasil only in the second decade of 1900.
